VietJet (Vietnam Airline) has announced direct flights from New Delhi to Ho Chi Minh City. It will start later this year and will fly four times a week.
What is a direct flight?
A direct flight can include stop-overs at one or more airports—it simply means you don’t have to change flights along the way. Currently, there are no non-stop flights between India and Vietnam. Most flights take you via Thailand, Singapore or Malaysia.
Vietnam Airline Also Known As Bikini Airline
Vietnam Airline has been publishing an annual calendar featuring bikini-clad models dressed as flight attendants, pilots and ground staff. Luu Duc Khanh, VietJet’s managing director, told Reuters:
“We are not upset when people associate us with the bikini image. If that makes people delighted and happy, then we’ll be happy.
Also, Thi Phuong Thao, the billionaire woman CEO of VietJet said that the calendar and the bikini shows are “empowering images in Vietnam’s conservative culture”.
